Local COVID-19 Vaccination Programme - Currently finished - if you somehow managed to miss it contact us!

 

The COVID-19 vaccine programme started on Saturday 16th January 2021. 

Charlbury Surgery is in the Primary Care Network (PCN) with Burford, Bampton and Broadshires surgeries. We work together to co-ordinate and deliver the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine from Carterton Health Centre. This vaccine is fragile, does not travel well and requires careful handling and mixing, hence patients requiring this vaccine are expected to travel to Carterton.

The Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine will usually be administered to you from Charlbury Football club.

Second doses of vaccine are given around 12 weeks after the first. Second dose will be the same vaccine you had as your first and given from the same venue that you received your first dose from. Boosters (third dose) will likely come in the autumn and may be given separately to the flu vaccine depending on timings of delivery.

We will be in contact directly with eligible patients as soon as we can. The vaccine will be offered to most at-risk patients first. We request that you please be patient and do not call the surgery to enquire about booking your vaccine.

On the days we are vaccinating the majority of our staff from Charlbury will be deployed to the effort. We therefore need to suspend routine work to prioritise vaccinations and so we ask for your understanding. 

 

A reminder to please wear loose clothing to vaccine appointments. No Jumpers or tight shirts. A wide sleeved  shirt (or T-shirt) and a baggy cardigan would be ideal. Clothing needs to EASILY push up above the shoulder. Masks and social distance as usual.

Appointments



    • Please telephone the surgery if you need an appointment.

    • Please don’t contact the surgery by e-mail & try to request an appointment this way, or try to open lines of communication with a doctor this way. This will not work for you and your request will be ignored. Our reception team are on hand to receive your telephone calls and can’t be expected to monitor two lines of communication at the same time. The same is true for the doctors.

    • Please don’t try to contact any of the doctors directly by their personal NHS e-mail or personal telephone numbers as they don’t have time to monitor their personal NHS e-mails whilst at work and do not expect to be contacted by patients in this way. E-mails may not be checked for a couple of weeks if a person is on annual leave. Information being sent outside the normal channels is dangerous and may lead to causing you harm. We have had one or two incidents of patients doing this and wondering why their medical problem was overlooked.

OCCG Patient Participation Groups (PPG)

If you're interested in having your say about the way local health services are delivered, getting involved with Charlbury Patient Participation Group (CPPG) is a good place to start. The group is made of volunteer patients from the practice, there are regular meetings (obeying current social distancing guidelines)

Issues such as services on offer and how improvements may be made for benefit of both patients and practice staff are debated. Joining a group can help to shape the delivery of local services. Many members also find that volunteering is a great way to meet new people and develop your own skills. A positive and diplomatic approach is welcomed.
